Portuguese genealogy links -- A collection of home pages about Portugal

Portuguese Genealogy...

[Lusa] Portuguese Genealogist Master List
(as you might have guessed, a page about Portuguese genealogy. Very much in its infancy, it is divided by region of Portugal and contains the lists of surnames that various people are searching for; very interesting--if only more people sent their research topics to the owner Doug da Rocha Holmes.

[Lusa] AOL's Hispanic Genealogy Address Book--Portugal[New]
(though it has the name 'Hispanic' on it, this page is actually about Portugal; contains contains links to various user sites, libraries, and societies; also has addresses for some main resources such as the national archives at the Torre do Tombo and professional genealogists working on Portugal)

[Lusa] Netting Your Ancestors--Spain, Portugal & the Basques[New]
(a professional collection of links about these three peoples; contains quite a lot of Portuguese info in a well organized manner)

[Lusa] Fernando Candido's Genealogy Pages[New]
(a mini-directory of resources related to genealogy in Portugal--Fernando traces his efforts and has links to a number of archives, societies, GenWEB projects, and other genealogy personal pages)

[Lusa] Tradição -- Genealogia e Heráldica Portuguesa [New]
(a beginning initiative to create sort of a center for genealogical studies on the Web; maintained by Rodrigo Ortigão de Oliveira, it contains, at this point, only the genealogy for one name/family (Almada e Avranches); it gives a monthly genealogy prize to a Web site on genealogy with the caveat that it must be written in Portuguese which, unfortunately, the vast majority are not)

[Lusa] Arquivo Distrital de Braga[New]
(Braga's archives--details its holdings which are considerable, the services it offers, although I didn't see any for genealogy, and publications of the studies it conducts)

[Lusa] Larry Barreto's Madeira
(a nice "bits and pieces" view of Madeira--contains pictures of Larry's trips there although the genealogical information he presents is the selling point; contains links to a number of other genealogy sites)

[Lusa] Lusa Web
(focused on the expatriate Portuguese, this homepage contains some history of some immigrant communities as well as links to other homepages of the same topic; sponsored by a couple of California organizations, it has a California feel to it; newly added is a section on genealogy where you can register your own information)

[Lusa] GenWeb--Azores[New]
(part of the World GenWeb Project, this page is what you would expect--a collection of information on the genealogy of the Azores; also has links to related and personal pages, as well as information on the islands including weather, history, topography, and so on)

(as the titles says, they're genealogical and historical notes about the island of São Jorge in the Azores; all text with a lot of names going back to 1432 and including slaves)

[Lusa] Cheri Mello's Genealogical Resources for Researching the Açores
(a text file containing many addresses of genealogical associations in both Portugal and the U.S. regarding Portuguese ancestry; updated regularly by Cheri Mello, one of the most prominent genealogists on Portugal in California)

[Lusa] Genealogia dos Condes de Almada e Avranches[New]
